Great story!

This has a very capturing start. However, it does need a re-read and a polish there were some sentence structure issues that need looking a,t as it could distract from what is a very good plot.
Some the characters have very 'famous' names from shall we say 'famous' love stories and Emma, Scarlet, Darcy... that could be a plus or a minus. howver it was so enjoyable that maybe it is a minor. Some of your dialogue was brilliant. I would definitely improve the blurb as that does the story no justice and does not fit the writing style which is compelling overall. BTW consider getting a new high res cover as the picture has pixilated in the upload and that's a shame because from what I could see its a good cover.
Keep writing and improving well done and good luck

Ha ha wow ha ha fab!

Firstly anything that as me giggling out loud on the tube or bus is a winner; the British references made me cry-laugh. Some other reviewers have referred to the plot being disjointed and while there is an element of that I was not overly was not distracted, mainly because the writing style; which is witty and sharp is strong. The decriptions were vivid, and the dialogue made me feel I was in the room jabbering with the characters.It .reads well, and you must have sorted the typos(?) although I'd say get work on the blurb because it's clunkier tan the feel of the book
Good work, but then again what's not to love its funny and has aliens? Does it for me!

Smiling on the tube

Anything that makes me smile to myself on public transport is always a winner like the other reviewer it has a familiar plot but you have made this your own. One take away- your dialogue is often very strong so like an editor once told me, you don't need to describe it by telling the reader how it was said. I can tell by your great descriptions that someone is arguing for example, so no need to say "he argued" keep writing and keep making people laugh out loud
